I am reviewing a copy of Liana’s Dance through Rhiza Press and Netgalley:
Liana Bedford lives in a constant state of fear. While shopping for a present in the Bazzar for their Mother Liana, her sister and their escort are knocked to the ground. Soon Liana finds herself in a constant state of fear. She has no appetite, and finds comfort only in dance. Liana suffered from PTSD.
Liana Bedford is a Pakistani-Australian and could very well be the next target When her school friends disappear one night Liana’s world is changed
With her new teacher Mr. Kimberly Liana must go through rural Pakistan to find her friends and bring them home, and she must dance to save her life.
I found Liana’s character to be well developed, and the emotions in this story to be raw and real.
Liana’s Dance receives five out of five stars.
